About five years ago, a Chinese company built an automatic sperm extractor. The machine was able to help users with masturbating by doing the ‘hard’ work for them. The machine enabled the user to insert the penis into the machine where it ‘can simulate the vaginal environment, and through massage, twitching, sucking, vibration, etc., act upon the human penis, which can make semen collection be fast and safe. So it is the best clinical collection equipment of semen.’
A recent video of the machine has gone viral on Twitter. However, we fear that many of us are just acting immature. The machine is not just a gadget to be used for the sake of masturbating but also serves two other very important purposes that are generally left out.
As per the machine’s product description on Alibaba, apart from being a semen collector; it also serves as a tool for desensitization training for premature ejaculation and sex-psychological evaluation. Although, the Twitter users made fun at why anyone would need Sperm Extractor for the sake of providing a sample when they could simply use the old fashioned way.
What they haven’t factored in is the fact that masturbating in a clinical setting such as a hospital can be quite the turn-off for many people. A semen sample can be required for multiple reasons including hormonal treatment or fertility analysis. Receiving samples quicker in a hospital environment and collecting that sample in a sterile and contained manner is quite crucial for accurate testing.
This Sperm Extractor should be considered as a piece of medical equipment rather than a robotic means of having sex. The proof of this statement lies in the huge orders that are placed by hospitals. According to a report, 10,000 of the $13,000 device are sold on a yearly basis.
